Thought for Food

This past week, I’ve been trying to figure out what my dietary needs are and how to fulfill them. I haven’t been doing a great job with eating, but I’m getting there. For now, I’m working out what I think I need, then I’ll figure out the portions later. Food History Before I delve into the details of my current thinking, there is my history with food. I was somewhat […]

Missing Pieces

It’s been a while since I sat down in front of my computer. A lot has happened, mostly good, even the yucky stuff. First, I went to visit my sister’s family for 10 days. It was a fabulous vacation from coiling, especially the part where I got to play with my nephew and niece every day. Before I left, I did a little more Bartonella coiling and discovered that doing […]

Talking Turkey

This past week, I’ve been thinking a lot about how to go from where I am, which is better than I’ve been since I got sick, to healthy and capable of daily activity. In a lot of ways, I think I’m on the right track. I’ve made adjustments to the Bartonella protocol. I’m trying new foods and doing my best to get the dormant Lyme bacteria back into their active […]

Emboldened

Today I’m reducing the number of supplements I take in an effort to let the Lyme bacteria wake up from their dormant form. It’s a big deal for me. Over the past few weeks, I’ve slowly been reducing the number and dosage of supplements, specifically the ones that have strong antioxidant properties. Now I’m cutting down to the bare bones. Looking back at the supplements I was taking, it fell […]

Supplemental Information

After the last post, when I was writing about reducing the amount of supplements I take, I started to get excited about the possibility of not having to take pills with every meal. What a difference that would be. With that in mind, I’m reviewing the supplements I’m currently taking and considering what to stop and when. The current list is much smaller than the one I was taking last […]

Precarious Progress

Over the past few weeks, while I was away from home and coiling, as well as when I returned, I discovered that my energy level has increased to almost normal levels. Almost. I have my hours of needing to sit still and be quiet while unable to focus on anything. But compared even to the beginning of August, my current energy level seems almost miraculous. Since I began coiling in […]

Lyme Waltz

Starting this past Friday, I’ve changed my coiling schedule. Day One is Lyme plus morning and evening Bartonella. Days Two and Three are full Bartonella protocol. Three steps, in succession, to the beat of the music. Lyme Coiling I decided I need to do Lyme every third day if I want to kill it fast and reduce the severity of each herx. I really learned my lesson over the past […]

Somethings old, somethings new

I went on a trip at the beginning of March to the deserts of southern California with my husband. I took about 8 days off from coiling to go on the trip. It gave me time to think about lots of things while we drove down and back, as well as while we enjoyed the natural environment. Since then, I’ve been really tired. REALLY TIRED. It took about 10 days […]

What to do about Insomnia

I’ve read over and over that one of the symptoms of Lyme Disease is insomnia. That hasn’t been the case with me, although if you’d asked me this between 2008 and a few months ago, I would have thought it was. After coiling for separate tick borne illnesses, I’ve been able to parse out which infections cause which types of sleep problems for me. Lyme Disease: lots of sleep, too […]

Diversions

Every now and then I remind myself that the reason for time is so everything doesn’t have to happen all at once. I need this reminder because when I feel bad, I don’t want to do anything. Then when I am a little bit well, I run off and do too much. Then I crash. In the days after my last post, I was pretty obsessed with insomnia. I had […]
